The purpose of this research was to combine ideas from virtual team learning theories with technology acceptance research to identify factors that contribute to the acceptance and use of electronic collaboration technologies. An overview is provided of a model for incorporating virtual teamwork training and identifying factors that contribute to the use of an electronic collaboration system. Additionally, theoretical constructs of the research model, including the research questions and hypotheses for the study, are included. A pilot study was used to test the reliability of the instrument. The results of the pilot are described. Finally, the paper concludes with the proposed data analysis methods.
